Imaging of Tumor Growth and Metastasis in a Pancreatic Cancer Mouse Model
23 March 2015
Mouse models have been developed for use in cancer research to investigate antitumor response and its role in disease progression, as well as to predict efficacy and find toxicities for cancer chemotherapeutic agents prior to beginning a clinical test. In this application note, the UVP iBox® Scientia™ Imaging System (UVP, LLC) was used to visualize the tumor in a pancreatic cancer model in vivo. Tumor growth is then measured using the Area Density functionality of the UVP VisionWorks®LS Acquisition and Analysis Software.
